Darren Bent and Andy Goldstein disagree with each other on their predictions for who will finish in the top four but they both placed Tottenham among the Champions League qualifiers. 

It was suggested by many that the North London Derby at the Emirates on Sunday would be Tottenham’s first big test of the season, and Ange Postecoglou’s men certainly passed the test with flying colours.

The Lilywhites had more possession than the home side and controlled large parts of the game, fighting back to draw level twice.

On the back of that performance, it seems like pundits are coming around to the idea that Spurs might indeed be the real deal this season.

Spurs Web Opinion
